Brough has a unique capacity for bringing the history and excitement of racing alive. High profile engagements have included Vodafone's VIP guests at the 2008 Epsom Derby, the delegates of the WEVA World Congress at Hyderabad in November 2011, the prestigious Carbine Club lunch at the launch of the Melbourne Cup Festival in Australia 2014 and the Guest of Honour speech at the Mansion House in 2015 for the Worshipful Company of Farriers. Brough also takes up engagements abroad including his recent trip to the National Sporting Library in Middleburg, Virginia.
He is happy to tailor-make speeches on any key races for the appropriate corporate or consumer audience.
These will always include interesting historical context, as well as an insider's insight into legendary characters,
and many amusing anecdotes.
Brough can also give a unique talk on Warrior, the Real War Horse, as he did in June 2015 at the Daily Mail Chalke Valley History Festival.
"Warrior the original War Horse" Lecture
Few horses have an Obituary in the Times. But Warrior did.
And during his lecture on the original War Horse, Brough Scott goes on to claim that “Warrior was the greatest horse that ever lived”. After hearing the incredible story of the real “War Horse” and seeing some amazing photos and Alfred Munnings drawings of his life you will see why.
Brough’s lecture can be tailor made to the specific audience but covers the heroic escapades of Warrior and Jack Seely as they head to the front in 1914 and are still there and alive four years later. The lecture is not just about a horse, but about the shaping of the history of our times and about the brave men and horses who fought, and died, for ‘God and Country’ and for a world that we partly take for granted and which to a large extent does not exist any more.
Warrior’s story will amaze and move you. All the more so because it is entirely true.
